CUMBERNAULD’S Save Abronhill High School campaign has gathered another public supporter.

This time, support comes from Clyde Football Club player David Marsh.

Twenty-two year old David, who was born in Falkirk, has declared that he was an ex-student of Abronhill High School.
The central defender recently played for Clyde at the club’s home game against Rangers FC, last Sunday.

David joins an ever growing list of well-known names who have publically declared their interest in saving Abronhill High School through micro-blogging website Twitter.

The latest announcement of support came as SNP MSP for Cumbernauld and Kilsyth Jamie Hepburn announced that he had met with a group of pupils campaigning to save Abronhill High School last month, at which time he said: “It is vitally important that those who will be most affected by the closure of Abronhill High School – that is the school’s pupils - are heard in the coming months, as the Council consults on its plan to shut the school next year.  That is why I am so pleased that a group of students has emerged to campaign against the closure.

“And of course, I was only too delighted to meet with some of those students to discuss how we can work together in the coming months to try and halt this proposal in its tracks.

The MSP added: “Now that the council’s consultation on the proposal to close Abronhill High is open, I hope to see a huge response from the Abronhill community and beyond to tell them why the school must stay open.”
